Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The fourth volume in Yoe’s Arf series dedicated to “the unholy marriage of art and comics” is the strongest yet, due in no small part to a major chunk of it being devoted to vintage work by screwball cartoonist Milt Gross. First up is a generous sampling of Gross’ 1920s Draw Your Own Conclusions, in which Gross drew a three-panel setup and left the ending for readers to fill in. His 31 collaborators here include many top contemporary comics artists, from mainstream mainstays Mort Walker and Bil Keane to undergrounders R. Crumb and Art Spiegelman. An assortment of Gross’ other strips follows. More rediscovered treasures on hand include a pre-Pogo Walt Kelly story, Dudley Fisher’s remarkable bird’s-eye-view Sunday newspaper pages, Gardner Rea’s sophisticated magazine cartoons, Argentine girlie cartoonist Guillermo Divito, and another of the hell-themed pieces Yoe fancies, this one by underrated comic-book master Bob Powell and reproduced, like many of the other selections, from the original art. Yoe’s access to such riches appears limitless, so bark and howl for more, comics fans. --Gordon Flagg

This is right up there with the previous entries in the Arf series. Just got my copy today...really enjoying it! I'm always astounded at how much there is (already published in the past) waiting to be rediscovered. Thankfully, Craig Yoe has done the research for us. The quality of the printing and paper is fantastic as usual.

Another brilliant Arf! Thanks so much to Craig Yoe for delivering such fascinating, beautiful material in such a whimsical way. The book is both informative and funny - it includes just the right balance of savvy and splat. I hope there are many more Arf! books in the future (and be sure to check out the other three Arf! books if you get this one!)

Thumbing through an Arf is like going to a museum for me. Each image is full throttle wonderful and chock full of history and goodness. Craig Yoe has such wonderful taste and collects only the best of the best. I am new to comix and I have received an invaluable education on what is cool in comix from the Arf volumes.
